Earl Camden's attempt in the late 18th century to make Primrose Hill a Belgravia of north London was frustrated by the arrival of the Regent's Canal and railways, which lowered the tone.
The area went downhill until the latter part of the 20th century, when writers, photographers, actors and musicians moved in. Today, it is a gentrified enclave, with bistros, boutiques and a splendid 110-acre open space on the hill itself.
The view from the summit can be enjoyed from St Edmund's Terrace, pictured, a gated development overlooking the park, with 36 high-end flats in three pavilion buildings linked by landscaped courtyards and a glass-covered walkway.
